Since I’m a nurse on extended medical leave I’ve been trying to keep up to date on health news, nursing techniques and so on so about a year ago I joined a few nursing groups and I get regular weekly or monthly newsletters.
The information I receive is usually quite helpful. It ranges from how to deal with grieving relatives and friends to new ways to treat chronic health problems like diabetes.
I came across one article today that talked about a new way to treat acne. It’s with acne pills. Now I knew that there were some prescription pills out there to treat acne, many in the form of antibiotics, but this is something different. They are antioxidant pills. It makes sense, but it was news to me.
Do you join internet based groups or sign up for newsletters related to your career so that you can stay up to date as well?
My Crohn’s is so bad that I don’t know if I’ll ever resume my nursing career, but just in case I do get healthy enough to go back to work I’d like to stay up to date as to what’s happening in my field.
